There are many dubious weight loss claims around. People are selling all kinds of pills and solutions that simply don’t work. Could the Obalon Balloon be any different? This is a new weight-loss device that you can take like a pill. It makes you feel full, so you get to control your weight by eating more moderately.
The Obalon inflates in the stomach. The whole process takes about 15 minutes from start to finish. It remains there for 12 weeks. The balloons need to be removed through an outpatient endoscopy. To be honest, I don’t know if I would ever try this. The thought of an inflated balloon in my stomach makes me want to eat less.
